Distant Time

I know not from what distant time
Thou art ever coming nearer to meet me.
Thy sun and stars can never keep thee hidden from me for aye.

In many a morning and eve thy footsteps have been heard
And thy messenger has come within my heart and called me in secret.

I know not only why today my life is all astir,
And a feeling of tremulous joy is passing through my heart.

It is as if the time were come to wind up my work,
And I feel in the air a faint smell of thy sweet presence.
